I’ve been writing on this blog for several years now, and I’m so grateful for those of you who read it each week! But for any newcomers, I’d love to introduce myself. I’m the author of the Night Buddies children’s books about a young boy named John and his nighttime adventures with the red crocodile, Crosley.

If you’re interested more in learning about how those books came to be, watch this video I made!


I raised my now grown son, John, as a single father (you guessed it, he’s the inspiration behind John the book character as well!) I love to raise St. Bernard dogs and have a passion for getting kids to fall in love with reading.

Now it’s your turn! Tell me something about yourself in the comments. I’d love for us to get to know one another.
